About John Johns

John Patrick Johns was a New York Central conductor. He turned to writing in the early 1930s and became a regular contributor to Railroad Stories, with lapses in his career.

His first published fiction work, “The Night Peddler,” appeared in Railroad Man’s Magazine in May 1930. He contributed fourteen stories between 1930 and 1934, including the round-robin “Hot Shot” with nine other authors. He was absent from Railroad Stories for six years, returning in 1940 with “Orders at Canyon.” He was a steady until “Night Run” was published in the January 1945 issue.

John Johns byline would remain absent from the magazine for nearly three decades, until two final stories — “On a Fogbound Night” and “The Thousand-Miler” — were published in 1974.
